PARINEETI CHOPRA TURNS ON HEAT ON FHM INDIA’S LATEST COVER

After Sidharth Malhotra-Alia Bhatt’s piping hot Vogue magazine’s cover, it’s Parineeti Chopra who has soared up the temperature with her latest sizzling shoot for FHM India’s March issue.

On the cover, the 27-year-old actress looked piping hot in a black and white picture, showing off her toned body in black mini with tousled hair and kohl-lined eyes. The other pic, shared on her Twitter handle, showed the ‘Ishaqzaade’ actress dressed in a white off shoulder dress with minimal makeup, and looked stunning in the bedroom look.

The ‘Kill Dil’ actress, who has recently returned home from her fun-filled Australia trip, will be next seen in ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ that also stars Ayushmann Khurrana.

I’M STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS

She makes no bones about admitting that she is a more confident person following her weight loss, but actress Parineeti Chopra, who believes being a celebrity puts her in a privileged position, says she still has a long way to go to be as fit as she wants to be.

Parineeti was on the chubbier side when she entered Bollywood with ‘Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl’ in 2011. But her transformation towards the end of last year left her critics tight-lipped. Does she feel more confident? “Yes, for sure! I do feel more comfortable in different clothes. I used to be conscious about how I am looking because I wasn’t confident about my body… But I do feel more confident as compared to earlier,” Parineeti told IANS in an interview over phone from Mumbai. But the 27-year-old actress was quick to add that she is “still a work in progress” as it “will still take a couple of months to completely get into the shape” that she wants. She has realised that being fitter helps in showbiz. The
‘Ishaqzaade’ and ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’ star said: “I think being your slimmest and fittest — whatever your body type may allow — is important because it helps you to do a variety of things on screen… I think if you are not your fittest self, then it limits you in the characters you play.”
